In interiors we take the current colours of “Teal, turquoise, mustard and mint, with a touch of purple.”
Reduce the intensity of the Chroma so they are adjusted for our Australian light.
This would mean adding a touch of grey. Light grey for a pastel or mid to dark for a tone.
These can be mixed with the pure chroma colours for zest and life.
The interior trends for 2016 and beyond are subdued or muted colours with wood. Wood wood and wood is everywhere now. With rattan, linen, stone (concrete) and terracotta clay work. Key look and feel for an interior space would be less static, the interior elements have a sense of movement to their design.
Look for pattern that has a lot happening, is almost collaged and individual (rather like the butterfly effect). No two pieces would be alike.
A contemporary tribalism. There is a lot of ‘busyness’ the muted colours and natural textures will make this design trend more livable.
I also am picking up on copper.
Copper and Bronze are warm and colours. They have the inviting properties of gold without the brashness. I am loving some of these images for copper ideas, how amazing to see them with wood and the green pops.
A strong example of natural recycled hand crafted timber for interiors is the product range at Deziner Panels.
“Timber Panel range is produced from recycled timber from old ships and structures. Such timber is becoming rare and precious, our panels are a way to continue their life. Each Recycled wall panel is handmade with great care and excellence. Visual stress marks, splits, indentations, knots and cracks are natural characteristics for our products.” Deziner Panels.
I covert this bench panel for a client!
